Langdale Pikes Plate
These are the first prints from a new plate inspired by a walk across the Langdale Pikes in Cumbria.
The first print is a straight intaglio treatment of black ink. I am pleased with the dynamic quality of the image.
The second print is stronger in the original than it looks in this reproduction. To produce it the plate was first wiped with a mixture of Ultramarine with Paynes Grey, then Cadmium Yellow was rollered on top along with blots of neat Cadmium Red, applied with scrim.
